Field diagnosis: Women's Political Participation in Monastir and Sousse

02.08.2017 / Created by (EMWF)

Although Tunisian women have actively participated in political life for a long time, they are generally absent from power and decision-making positions. This diagnosis describes the political commitment of Tunisian women, with special focus on the governorates and municipalities of Monastir and Sousse during the period of democratic transition. It also addresses the realities of women involved in political parties and trade unions.

The diagnosis was coordinated by the Euro-Mediterranean Women’s Foundation and the European Institute for the Mediterranean (IEMed), and is part of the Axis 1 “Strengthening the capacities of equality actors” of the Priority Solidarity Fund “Women for the future in the Mediterranean” funded by the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Development, in the framework of the project “Developing Women’s Empowerment” labelled by the Union for the Mediterranean.
